A great white wine from La Palma as a consequence of the elegant Malvasía Aromática.

It is a late harvest, made from 100% Malvasia Aromatica, with an average age of 100 year old vines. A fine selection of grapes at the harvest and then reselected in the cellar. A cold maceration is applied for 14 hours. Racking and partial fermentation in stainless steel tank, with it’s own natural yeasts. It ends fermentation in french oak barrels of 500 liters. It’s matured on it’s lees for complexity.  In case there are proteins left it’s clarified.

It is a late harvest, made from 100 % Malvasia Aromatica, with an average age of 100 year old vines.
